Their result for The What Computer Are You Test ...

The Embedded Computer

You scored LOW on Power and LOW on Pretension!

Congratulations! You are the Embedded Computer. What's that, you ask? Well, embedded computers are the ones you never notice. They're the ones that work independently, operating devices with simple functions that require a minimum of human interaction. Think elevators and anti-lock car breaks. Even credit cards can have comptuers embedded in them. Ever accidently set off the detectors at your local department store? Looks like there's an active tag on one of your purchases (or thefts, as the case may be.) Embedded computers are very simple and usually very small, but they are everywhere. We just don't notice them unless they're not working properly. Without them, many luxuries we take for granted would not be possible.

 

You scored low on power. Embedded computers are definitely at the low end of the spectrum. Their tasks are simple and their circuitry is tailored specifically for what they must do. Whereas the more popular home computer is designed to do anything it is programmed to, embedded computers are designed to do only what it is programmed to do. But they do it well, so you be happy about that.

 

You also scored low on pretension. Embedded computers are shy, unassuming creatures. That doesn't mean they can't be cool and high-tech, just that they tend to fly under the radar most of the time. If you ask me, they're the luckier for it.
